I'm trying to deal with the recently updated twitter API v1.1 to post tweets right from my website to my twitter account, any one can help me with a step by step if possible? I feel I'm missing something!
Here is the code I'm using to post my messages to twitter:
<cfset fullmessage = "My Test Message goes here">
<cfset oauthheader = 'OAuth oauth_consumer_key="xxx", oauth_nonce="xxx", oauth_signature="xxx", oauth_signature_method="HMAC-SHA1", oauth_timestamp="xxx", oauth_token="xxx", oauth_version="1.0"'>
<cfset tweetURL = "https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/update.json">
<cfhttp url="#tweetURL#" method="post" result="resultName">
    <cfhttpparam type="header" name="Authorization" value="#oauthheader#" encoded="yes">
    <cfhttpparam type="formfield" name="status" value="#fullmessage#" encoded="no">
</cfhttp>

Open in new window

any thing wrong with my code above ?! I cannot get this to work ! I am running a windows 2008 R2 64bit dedicated server.
Any help is appreciated.

Hi Mark

You have to pass User_id while posting it to User Time Line API.

Please visit my blog, recently I integrated new Version of API where I bring latest tweets and show it in my Web Page

Here is an CFC which is available on Riaforge, It is available for latest API Version: The Usage is Pretty Simple:

http://monkehtweet.riaforge.org/

The usage Manual is inside the code, but here is the start:

The below goes in Application.cfc

<cfscript>
	application.objTweet = createObject('component','Twitter.com.coldTwitter.monkehTweet').init(
	consumerKey = 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX',
	consumerSecret = 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX',
	oauthToken = "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX",
	oauthTokenSecret = "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX",
	userAccountName = "Your Name",
	parseResults = true
	);
	return true;
	</cfscript>

Below put the code anywhere where you want to show tweets, i prefer an included file

<cfset totalTweets = 4>
<cfset arrStatus = application.objTweet.getUserTimeline() />
<cfif arrayLen(arrStatus) LT totalTweets>
    <cfset totalTweets = arrayLen(arrStatus) />
</cfif>
<cfoutput>
<ul>
<cfloop from="1" to="#totalTweets#" index="tweet">
    <cfset status = application.objTweet.entify(arrStatus[tweet]) />      
    <span class="tweet_text">
    	<li id="custom-twitter-4_tweets">#arrStatus[tweet]['user']['name']#: #status#</li>
    </span>    
</cfloop>
</ul>
</cfoutput>
